Martha is 55 years old. She is married and has seven children, only one of whom still lives at home with her. For one year, Martha has been making trash bags. She used to have a small grocery store but, over time, she saw that she wasn't making very good profits and so decided to change her business activity and start making bags. She used her savings to buy a machine for sealing plastic.

Martha will invest her loan in increasing her capital and buying supplies. She has managed to buy another machine and her dream is to own a plastics company.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
